Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Jarvi's affectionate reading of this early work brings out the Czech flavours in Dvorak's inspiration and makes light of the continuing Wagner influences...this is a performance to win converts to an often underrated work." - PENGUIN GUIDE "Jarvi's affectionate reading of this early work brings out the Czech flavours in Dvorak's inspiration and makes light of the continuing Wagner influences...this is a performance to win converts to an often underrated work." - PENGUIN GUIDE Read less
